Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of murder and four counts of burglary and a 35-year-old woman on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. They remain in custody in a south London police station.

Richard Bowes was a resident of Ealing who tried to put out a fire started by arsonists in Springbridge Road on Monday 8th August. After the arsonists attacked him, police drove them away and took Mr Bowes to St Mary’s Hospital, where he later died. The cause of death was given as a head injury.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old man who was arrested in Hanwell on suspicion of murder, rioting and three counts of burglary has been released on bail.

Anyone who can assist with eyewitness accounts of the attack on Mr Bowes or mobile phone footage should call Sutton Police on 020 8721 4205 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
